Carab Culln the Risen
Carab Culln the Risen – Formerly the Lord High Commander of the Red Scorpions Chapter, Carab Culln was believed lost to the Imperium in the campaigns that followed the Indomitus Crusade. Grievously wounded in the slaying of the Great Beast of Sarum, Culln’s remains were returned to the Chapter, bearing only the faintest whisperings of life. Thus in honour he was interred within the armoured shell of a Relic Leviathan Dreadnought, blessed with the technology to allow Culln to serve his brethren in battle once again.
One of the few characters that we see evolve, change and die in the 40K narrative. In a world where There is Only War, there are precious few casualties! Dante, Calgar, Grimnar – they all wade heartily through apocalypse after apocalypse without a scratch on their armour. The Forge World studio was so refreshing with how they dealt with the body count. The Seige of Vraks series in particular has a high body count. No one is safe. EVERYONE DIES!
Carab Culln the Risen is the conclusion to Culln’s arc – from Sgt. to dreadnought we have seen the rise and entombment of one of the Imperium’s greatest heroes. And what a thrill to paint him!
